PATIENCE

Patience is a virtue everyone needs, especially Christians. Instead of attaching A.S.A.P ( As soon as possible) to everything, we should develop our patience, but nobody wants to wait for anything, they want their prayers answered, fame and fortune right away, everyone wants instantaneous success, but no time to wait. What we fail to realize half the time, is that our omnipotent God, sees and knows everything. He knows what we need before we even ask for it. He also knows the exact time and moment we need something.

As Christians, we also should know that God operates on His schedule, His time, His plans, and His will (Isaiah 55:8-9; Jeremiah 29:11). Patience develops, and strengthens your faith, hope, and trust in God (James 1:3-4; 1 Thessalonians 1:3), our God is patient with us, not to mention merciful (Romans 5:5). Did you forget that He told us, His grace is sufficient for us, and His strength is made perfect in our weakness ( 2 Corinthians 12:9).

God never lies, and He is not slack concerning His promises (Numbers 23:19, Hebrews 6:18, 2 Peter 3:9) so what is the problem?  Listen, instead of worrying, and trying to figure out how God is going to do it, you need to glorify Him, thank Him, praise Him, meditate on His promises, remain righteous, till you get answers, breakthrough, deliverance, whatever it is you prayed and asked for.

It’s only when we develop a solid relationship with Him, that we will get A.S.A.P answers to questions, and prayers, that’s when our focus will be on Him, and not our problems or situations, that’s when our faith, hope, trust, and patience takes full control. Job shows us what will happen when we are patient (Job 1:22, James 5:11), he got double for his patience.

They that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, they shall walk, and never faint(Isaiah 40:31). Our God does not do anything in a hurry, or a rush. The point is, our God took six days to create the Heaven and the earth, when He could have done it in one, so you better make a note of that, if you never knew.

And, the most important thing of all, is to make sure He gets the glory, praise, and thanks, because He deserves it, so be sure to tell it in the streets, highways, by-ways over the hills and everywhere.  If you don’t know the God I am referring to, or His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, who is the only way to Him according to John 14:6, then go to the top of this blog, and click on to the salvation page, then just follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever did.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to relay His message to you, I pray it was a blessing to you as it was to me, and you will obey His will, and His way in the name of Jesus, amen.

KNOWING GODS WILL

To know Gods will, you must first know Him; to know Him, you must know His word, and follow the word, which is His only begotten son Jesus Christ, who came to introduce us to the true, and living God (John 1:1-14). ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son’ (John 3:16-17), so now we know, that it’s not Gods will for anyone to perish, but for all of us to have eternal life.

To truly know Gods will, there are certain criteria, we must follow: we must accept the gift of His son Jesus Christ(John 14:6), we need to confess our sins, and ask for forgiveness(repentance)(1 John 1:9,Proverbs 28:13), we must seek Him, and His righteousness first (Matthew 6:33).

To be righteous, you must be in right standing with God (Romans 8:10,2 Corinthians 5:21). To be in right standing with God, you must deny yourself, obey His commands and will. You see folks to know God’s will you must know Him, and the power of His might (Psalm 46:8-10). In all your ways, you must acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path(Proverbs 3:6), we know His will when we study His word, ‘study to show yourself approved unto God’ (2 timothy 2:15), we know His will through prayers, ‘confess our faults, and pray for each other, that we may be healed, the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous person availeth much'(James 5:16). ‘For I know the plans I have for you’, says the Lord,’plans to prosper you, and not to hurt you, plans to give you hope, and a future.Then you will call upon me,and go pray to me, and I will listen to you, you will seek me, and find me, when you search for me with all your heart, I will be found by you’, says the Lord,’and will bring you back from captivity’..(Jeremiah 29:11-14).

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open, unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil (1 Peter 3:12). Friends you must trust in the Lord with all your hearts ,and never, ever rely on your own understanding, or your friends (Proverbs 3:5-6). This is the only way you will prove, what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2). Friends if you seek Him, pray, fast, repent daily, stay in righteousness, meditate on His word, cast down every knowledge, and thought that is not of God, or in His word (the Holy Bible), you will know Gods will, and His plans for you.

If for whatever reason, you don’t know God, His gift of His only begotten son Jesus the Christ, then go to the top of this blog, click onto the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever do, in your entire life. I give God, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to release His message, to the saved, and unsaved, I pray they will be obedient to His will, and ways in Jesus Name, amen.
